* NOW UPDATED with the Top 80 best-selling models! Click on title to see *
In November 26,950 new cars found a buyer in Switzerland, bringing the year-to-date total to 299,031 units with only one month to go to finish 2012. After an unprecedented 3 month-break, the VW Golf is back in change in the Swiss models ranking, potentially helped by the arrival of the 7th generation, however it took a weak performance from the Skoda Octavia (at just 3% share vs. 3.5% last month) to crown the Golf that sold 840 units for a bland 3.1% share. Year-to-date, the Golf stays in the lead by far with 10,739 sales and 3.6% vs. 9,571 and 3.2% for the Octavia.
Excellent month for the Ford Fiesta, up 8 spots on October to #3 at 604 units and 2.2%. It is followed by the VW Polo and Renault Clio, both down one rank to #4 and #5 respectively while the Subaru XV is back up one spot to a world-best #6 with 404 sales and 1.5%. Other great performers in the Swiss Top 20 include the BMW 3 Series up 5 to #7, the Nissan Qashqai, Suzuki SX4 and BMW X3 all up 10 to #8, #10 and #11 respectively, the VW Up! reaching its best ranking so far in Switzerland at #12, the Suzuki Swift up 12 to #13 and the Range Rover Evoque up 13 to #19.
Further down, notice the Mazda CX-5 up 15 ranks to #22, the BMW X1 up 10 to #23, the Fiat Panda up 14 to #25, the Ford B-Max up 31 to #42, the Dacia Lodgy up to #63 and the Volvo V40 up to #67.
